I just was given a bonzai tree from my friend, because he was worried about his health. The bonzai tree that i have has the needles on it instead of the leaves. My first question is, i remember reading this site and it says that you should watter the folliage, do i water the needles?(does that count in terms of foliage?)
My second question in , i live in maine US where the temps always about 45 to 65 degrees. You said that i can keep the tree outside all year round. Is that true where i am?
My third question is, the reason my friend gave this to me is because he noticed a discoloration this the needles. It seemed as though that the needles facing the sun would turn yellow. i thought that it was lack of water and too much sun. before experimenting with such a beautiful plant i seek your diagnosis.
fourthly i wanted to ask you. Being a beginner, what are mostly important in keeping my plant feeling and looking healthy? What direction should i take, in this website. Thank you very much
